Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The best of you are those who feed others.” (Sahih - Musnad Aḥmad 23408) The foodbank at South London Islamic Centre which is run by SWAN has been providing food parcels to needy families/idividuals EVERY TUESDAY MORNING since 2012. We have distributed thousands of packs. We receive NO institutional funding and operate the Foodbank purely through donations from the community. When the mosque was closed because of Covid19 restrictions we continued providing food parcels to those in need. We have been working in collaboration with other local organisations and have provided hundreds of doorstep foodpacks. We are now preparing for the reopening of the Foodbank at South London Islamic Centre. We are also opening a new Foodbank at Thornton Heath Islamic Centre too; which will run in conjunction with our weekly soup kitchen on Monday evenings. We need your help! £15 provides a basic food pack with essential items. £2.50 provides a hot meal at our Soup Kitchen. Please support our Foodbanks and Soup Kitchen and help us, help families in South London who need food support.
